Sea Level Rise #9

Could not get to my computer last night...we went to a wonderful performance of Carmen at the Philadelphia Opera.

In the Everglades, the "sea of grasses", we see a range of ecosystems, dominated by what is called a "slough", a broad slow moving river many miles wide. The topography there is flat....incredibly flat. South Florida is probably the flattest place in this country. And, coming in at Homestead, the easternmost entry to the Park, we see very varied topography and ecologies. This one is the most dominant.....typical of the Everglades as a whole. Traveling the 37 miles to the end of the main park road and walking many of the trails along the way, we will see over the next days more landscapes than animal life....that comes in the second day of our trip into the park, entering at Shark River Valley (a loose term in flat country).
